    Can you help me understand the differences between these neck shapes..?

    - Les Paul Slim 60's
    - Les Paul Axcess Standard
    - Les Paul Axcess Custom

    So, for those who know all 3 neck shapes mentioned, help everyone else understand their differences (and actual dimensions, if you know). Unfortunetly, the gibson website is ridiculously misinformative on actual dimensions.

    I have a 60's Tribute and an Axcess (it's from the Custom Shop so I don't know if it's a Standard or not). The 60's neck is relatively thin with a round shape. My Axcess feels slightly wider and is flatter in shape on the back. Both feel very comfortable to me and I have no trouble going back and forth. The 60's neck is clearly thinner though.

    I've only owned 60's necks. Never owned an Axcess.
